How to assign an Adjutant in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes

More power!

In Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, two characters can essentially become one unit by teaming up. You do so by making a character an Adjutant. It's a great way to deal extra damage, and it's perfect for protecting damaged characters from meeting their demise. Here's how to assign an Adjutant in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes.

How do you pair up characters using Adjutant in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes?

There are two ways to assign an Adjutant to a character. The first is to swap to the character you wish to have an Adjutant attached to, then approach the character you want to become the Adjutant. Hold the L button next to the character who you want to become and Adjutant, then press Y. You will know it worked if their character icon appears next to your playable character's icon in the bottom-left corner of the screen.

The second way to do this is by opening up the Tactical Map and finding and selecting the character you wish to become an Adjutant. Next, drag the arrow to the character you want to assign them to and press ZR, then choose Assign Adjutant in the menu that appears. By doing it this way, you can give the orders without having to go around the map yourself. Once the battle has begun, you can only assign them via the Tactical Map. You cannot do it before the fight has started.

How do you remove an Adjutant in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes?

To remove an Adjutant, perform the same steps as above but in reverse. To remove an Adjutant from your playable character, hold L and press Y. This will unpair the duo, and you can assign orders once again to the other character.

From the Tactical Menu, find the character with the Adjutant, press ZR, and select Remove Adjutant from the menu. They will reappear on the map, and you can start giving them orders or assigning them to someone else.

What does an Adjutant do in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes?

Being an Adjutant provides many buffs to the assigning character and makes the Adjutant immortal to all damage, except for the active character dying. So, assigning an Adjutant that is almost dying is perfect, especially if playing on Classic Mode (where if they die, they die for good).

All Adjutant benefits

  • Gains experience at the same rate as the active character.
  • Increases the stats of the active character.
  • Active character warrior specials are strengthened by the Adjutant adding their own warrior special.
  • Is immortal.
  • Support Points are gained.
  • If the Support level is above C, the active character gets access to the Adjutant's support and tactical passives.
  • The active character also gets two extra abilities:
    • Adjutant Follow Up
      • This will slowly fill up during the battle. When full, attacks an enemy that you have knocked back by knocking them back toward you.
    • Adjutant Guard
      • This will slowly fill up during the battle and, when full, will guard the active character against an attack.
